IT'S THAT WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR! The locally grown strawberries are FINALLY available at the farmer's markets, and they are absolutely wonderful this year!
I have a deal with the kids - if they pick the berries, I will always make them a couple of Fresh Strawberry Pies - one is never enough! Sounds like a fair trade, don't you think? And the really little ones seem to put as many berries in their mouths as seem to make it into their containers!
We picked these strawberries up first thing in the morning, and the pies were made and chilling in the refrigerator by noon. Now, if I can only get them to let them chill for four hours so that we can enjoy these with dinner...
Can you see how RED these incredibly beautiful berries are ALL THE WAY THRU? You just don't get these in grocery-store mass produce.
Perfect with a fresh cup of coffee, don't you think?
Hope that you'll enjoy this Fresh Strawberry Pie recipe as much as you probably ae drooling over the pictures right now!
Isn't summertime wonderful?
